(KJV.) ST. MATTHEW 26:13
(26) Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.
HAVE A HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!
Brethren, as humanity, one of our prerogatives is to record information about things and events with the perception of recalling them later on willfully in life, that events pertaining to what must have happened negatively or positively may not be forgotten; therefore, today, we commemorate fallen soldiers who dedicate their lives. fought warfares for nations; though many lives were lost on war fronts, their souls are asleep in the bosom of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior until the day of reconciliation; however, their sacrifices will never be forgotten, so long as this world continues in existence; therefore, today, the question we need to ask ourselves is, what significant or strong force of activities have we done, doing or will do in future to exemplify ourselves to the world, that when we sleep in death, future generations will know that we lived on this planet?, this is a point to ponder on!
Jesus went to Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper, a woman came with an alabaster box of very precious ointment, poured it on Jesus' head, as he was ready to eat meat; when the disciples saw what she has done, they became angry, thought that Jesus was too righteous for some woman to anoint him; wrong!, they said, in other words, "What is the point in wasting this oil, which can be sold for more money, and given to the poor?"; murmured, complained bitterly to themselves, but Jesus heard, understood, said unto them, why do you trouble this woman? whatever she did to me is a good work: the poor are with you always, but, I will not be with you forever. for the oil she had poured on my body, she did for my burial; therefore, I say to you wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this thing, that this woman had done to be told for a memorial.", refer to the book of St. Matthew 26:6-13: this's mighty work of our Father!, for when the women thought to pour the anointing oil upon Jesus Christ, unseemingly, her positive thought, action, attitude went down into theological history; her positive action towards Jesus Christ, was recorded, remembered, preached of in congregations all over the world; therefore, when the Holy Spirit prompts believers to take necessary steps to do his works, let us not grieve him, hold back his counsels, but endeavor to obey his voice, act upon his will; for no one knows for sure reasons why, what type of manifestation will surface upon our obedience to voice of the Holy Spirit: the woman with an alabaster oil, obeyed the voice of the Holy Spirit and acted upon his instruction, anointed Jesus Christ, her good work is told in the scriptures for a memorial of her; the question is; what is there yet to say about believers of this generation?, the answer is rightfully ours; therefore, let us do our best to impact positively in this world of darkness, listen, follow dictates of the Holy Spirit, our teacher and guidance, do his will wholeheartedly, exemplify ourselves in Jesus Christ, have an impact in this world of darkness, and be shining examples, remembered of our good works in this generation and generations to come after we sleep in death.
